rumi...

this is a poem introduced to me by a beautiful soul in poona,

Become a person of the heart
—or at least the devotte of one;
Or else, you will remain
like a donkey stuck in the mud.

If one has no heart,
one can gain no benefit;
In wretchedness, one
will be famous in the world.

----by RUMI

here's his pick...
"Dear Sophia,
Here is another one of Rumi’s gifts out of this wonderful little book;
*
Looking at my life

I see that only Love

has been my soul’s companion.

From deep inside

my soul cries out:

Do not wait, surrender

for the sake of Love."
